  1. Just noticing that Galactic is playing tomorrow night (Saturday, 6/22). Not sure how I missed that initially, but I may make a trip down for that.
  2. Bummed to be missing this. Especially after driving to Toronto for the cancelled show a few years ago and not being able to make the rescheduled date. Anyway, have fun team. I’ll be playing along from home. Velvet can have my drink tickets.
  3. Letterman will be on WTF tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.
  4. That’s fantastic, and Billy is a hell of a player to boot. I’ve seen him a few times opening up for Greensky.

  7. Also there’s a Paul McCartney tribute act this year, which mystifies me. Will he play only post-Beatles material? Will he play Beatles material but with a non-Beatles themed backing band? Did they only have the budget for 1/4 of a Beatles tribute? All actual questions that I have. Edit: I Googled it. The guy aims to recreate a Paul McCartney show, playing solo and Wings material as well as Beatles tunes. So there’s that.
  8. It’s a Wednesday to Saturday, evening start on the weeknights, late afternoon start on the Saturday. Single day tickets are fifty bucks (!), full passes are ninety-five. I remain confused by the viability of this, but as I said before, God bless ‘em. https://nostalgiafestival.ca/
  9. I was in a back-and-forth about this very topic on Twitter. I’m calling $350 plus camping fees as the cheapest option, up to a bajillion dollars for super magical endangered tiger VIP packages. Some people were using the Phish Watkins prices as a guideline, but I don’t think this will be comparable in that regard.
  10. True enough. I would be pretty happy - thrilled, even! - to be able to ride my bike to this festival after work every night. Lots of good stuff on here, but not enough to tempt me to make the trek. Also, as a three-day festival lineup it seems a little cobbled together and uneven, but then again so do I.
  11. When I saw the Bluesfest lineup I thought I had officially entered my Jazzfest years. But now that I see the Jazzfest lineup I feel frightened and alone. Hooray for The Roots, at least.
  12. The Roots will also be at Jazzfest, I think.
  13. Nothing on there that really scratches my itches, although enough people have recommended Jason Isbell that I might check him out. Aside from that, I hope a million people go and have all the fun and drink all the beers, but my summer concert money and days off will be spent elsewhere.
  14. Anyone have any other rumours or speculation?
  15. I think last time I snagged a pair of 200s for $25 total, or thereabouts. I seem to recall having the pick of the pavilion for that price, aside from the pit. Granted this was PBD (Pre-Baker’s Dozen).
  16. Toronto is the only realistic show for me and I didn’t even bother with PTBM or the onsale date. Last time there were tons of great tickets floating around for wicked cheap (although, yeah, ultimately I drove from Ottawa to Toronto to hug three people in a parking lot and then not see a concert) so I didn’t feel compelled to make a mad dash at onsale. And if I get burned because of it, well then hooray that so many people are enjoying this band again!
  17. Greensky Bluegrass is doing a free webcast of their show in St. Louis tonight (Friday, 1/18) and I think that Circles Around the Sun's opening set will be part of it. Do it up: http://nugs.tv/free/?showID=21.
  18. My pleasure. FYI I think Circles Around the Sun's opening set will be part of the broadcast. Yeehaw!
  19. Just said this in an e-mail, about the shows I saw: Really engaging stuff. And a little more restrained and deliberate than what is often seen with psychedelic bands. I zeroed in on the bass player more than any of the other players, which is unusual for me, but he was great. Creeping all over the fretboard but not in a wanking kind of way, while continually coming back to the main riff to keep everything grounded.
  20. This band will just not stop crushing it. I did a three show run last week: Albany, Philly, and NYC. Wicked fun to hang with edger and c-towns in Albany, the venue in Philly (The Met) was brand new and spectacular, and in NYC they sold out their first ever show at The freakin' Beacon. So great. And in a nod to the ghosts of Beacon past, they encored with Midnight Rider. Classy. Obviously I'm a bit of a gushing fan boy over here, but the skill and intensity of this band is still rising. Their songwriting is spot on, and their jams are increasingly adventurous and go deep into unexpected territory. As I've said before, they're a five-headed, twenty-nine-stringed monster with no sign of slowing down. Their new album All For Money drops today (January 18th), and as a special bonus they're doing a free webcast of their show in St. Louis tonight. Get on it: http://nugs.tv/free/?showID=21.
  21. Saw these guys three times last week opening up for Greensky. Great shows, as expected. Funky and playful but just a little bit dark, almost spooky (technical musical term there), and they are all deadly players. They didn't mix up their short setlist at all over the three shows, but that didn't bother me too much as the songs were hardly formulaic. Bottom line: four heady crystals out of five, would recommend (especially for something longer than an opening set).
